Holy Land Fieldwork
The Holy Land programme has been an important part of ACOM’s International Fieldwork since 2014.
ACOM has hosted over 130 people visiting the Holy Land, immersing themselves in an experience that combines academic excellence with a personal pilgrimage to historical sites that anchor our faith, as read about in the pages of our Bibles.
Every two years, students, alumni and friends of ACOM have the opportunity to spend two weeks exploring biblical and extra-biblical sites within Israel and Jordan in a programme that not only takes them to ancient ruins but also provides an opportunity to experience the culture of this ancient land and meet the people who live there today. The programme includes visits to historical and archaeological sites such as the Old City of Jerusalem and Bethlehem, as well as time in the natural beauty of the Mount of
Beatitudes and the Sea of Galilee. We have been blessed by interactions with Christians who live in the midst of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a homestay opportunity in Bethlehem and family meals with local Jews in Jerusalem.
ACOM is also committed to expanding its International Fieldwork in the future, providing immersive educational and formative opportunities for our students. Future possibilities include Restoration and Reformation Tours, Spirituality Pilgrimages and Missional
The next trip to the Holy Land was scheduled for January 2022, but due to COVID-19 this is expected to be postponed. If you would like to be notified when plans are confirmed, please contact us to be placed on the Expressions of Interest list.
